Imagine a Day Without Water 

Glass of Water


Can you imagine a day without water? When we have reliable water services, we often don’t think twice about the infrastructure that brings water to our homes or businesses, but we should. Water supports every facet of our daily lives, but it is facing unprecedented challenges. Increasing population and climate pressures, including natural disasters like drought, flooding, and wildfires, threaten our water security and increase the possibility of a day without water. Millions of Americans take water service for granted every day, but due to an aging infrastructure for water supplies and the pressure of unpredictable environmental stresses, accessible water is not a guarantee. Like many communities of arid Southern California, Los Angeles has an especially precarious relationship with water in the face of drought seasons. Fortunately, due to continued community awareness and government action, residents of the Los Angeles region have affordable access to water that facilitates daily life and activity. For Imagine a Day Without Water 2019, held on October 23rd, consider what your day would be like if you couldn’t run the tap and get clean drinking water or water for bathing or brushing your teeth. What would that day be like? What is the value of water in your daily life? This national day of action is an opportunity to get involved, reflect on why water is important to you and your community, and share your story. On October 23rd, take a moment to celebrate water and voice what water means to you! Share your message by using #ValueWater on social media.
